Note: Hit play. This video looks missing but it’s there.

The BBC nature series Earthflight showcases nature’s wonders from the perspective of birds across the globe. And from the look of this promo video, narrated by David Tennant, it’s all pretty spectacular-looking. Watch brown pelicans soar above a school of California devil rays as the rays perform flying somersaults through the air.
